Healthy…Ice Cream?

Bananas and peanut butter are one of my favorite pairings and tonight I made them into ice cream.  Surprisingly, it was very creamy and smooth without any dairy!  My sister did not believe there was no added sugar or cream… it was that good.  I used a recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod, but added a little more peanut butter than the recipe called for.

Banana and Peanut Butter Ice Cream (4 servings)

4 bananas (make sure they are ripe)

4 tablespoons peanut butter

Cut the bananas into small pieces and place them into a zip-ploc bag.   Place them in the freezer for around 2 hours.

Place the frozen bananas into a blender or food processor.  Puree until it forms a creamy smooth mixture.  Add the peanut butter and mix again until it is incorporated.  Put the mixture into a tupperware container and freeze until it reaches your desired consistency.

When I scooped mine out I decided to add a couple of chocolate chips as a reward for eating well.

So, here is to starting 2014 with healthier eating and hope you like it!
